Confessions of a Window Cleaner
There were four Confessions films starring Robin Askwith in the same
role, a bungling doofus who, for some reason, is irresistible to the ladies.
In this first installment of the series he loses his virginity after two
abortive attempts. It seems that washing windows not only provides intimate
looks into apartments and houses, but often entails servicing the lady of
the house along with her windows. Robin is smitten by lady cop Linda Hayden,
but doesn't let that get in the way of shagging every other woman in sight.
Robin's brother-in-law owns the window washing business and tries to show
him the ropes. The boss does just as much fooling around as Robin, although
(or maybe because) his wife is very pregnant. Elsewhere, Robin's dotty dad
works for the bureau of misplaced items, and brings home anything that
strikes his fancy.
Perhaps, like the reviewers and IMDb voters, you do not approve of this kind of
foolishness. In that case, you can find a dust-covered copy of Babette's
Feast at your local Blockbuster. On the other hand, if you would not only approve
of but actually seek out a very naughty version of the Carry On style of humor, this
film is at the very top of the line, representing the best of a unique genre
in a unique time.
The nudity summary to the right will give you the best idea of what this
film is really about. Imagine Benny Hill, albeit with with non-stop nudity
and some simulated sex to complement the usual obvious double entendres and
general lowbrow silliness. If you enjoy Sir Benny and/or the Carry On
series, but wish they were not so tame, you will enjoy this.

This is a competent "couples erotica" film with lots of naked women to watch
